Who We Are
We are a group of young professionals from North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NA-YGN), who have come together to volunteer our time to create and use Clean Energy Insight in order to ultimately educate and raise awareness of nuclear power all over North America and the rest of the world.
The aim for the website is to provide an online tool to inform NA-YGN members, educators, and members of the general public on how they can make a difference in the clean energy debate. Through dialogue with schools, citizens, community leaders and politicians, our long-term goal is to advance public and political action in supporting the use and growth of nuclear energy.
NA-YGN Chapter members can share the following on Clean Energy Insight:
NA-YGN advocacy activities
NA-YGN news and information
NA-YGN community involvement activities
NA-YGN commentary on industry issues/news and nuclear fact articles
Clean Energy Insight Mission
“To educate, raise public awareness and encourage political action in favor of nuclear power for the benefit of America’s clean and affordable energy future.”
NA-YGN is a professional organization made up of members of the nuclear industry who are under the age of thirty-five.
The nuclear industry includes, but is not limited to, nuclear science and technologies like nuclear medicine that battles cancer and nuclear energy that delivers clean and safe energy to millions of people all over North-America.
You can visit NA-YGN’s website here: www.na-ygn.org
“NA-YGN provides opportunities for a young generation of nuclear enthusiasts to develop leadership and professional skills, create life-long connections, engage and inform the public, and inspire today’s nuclear technology professionals to meet the challenges of the 21st century.”
Where We Stand
According to the Energy Information Administration, electricity demand will increase as much as 36% by the year 2030. Renewable resources are critical in the race to fulfill this power need. Wind energy and solar power will certainly figure into this equation; however, it is irresponsible at best to believe that they can substantiate the whole of this need.
We believe that the most viable, safe, reliable, and clean solution is nuclear power.
We believe that it is critically important that the nuclear industry be expanded to fill this role. Currently, there are 104 nuclear reactors in the United States which combine to generate approximately 20% of the nation’s electricity, as well as 70% of the nation’s clean energy.
As the country grows, so too shall the need for a safe, clean, and reliable energy source. That energy source is Nuclear Power.
